内容摘要: 钱端升(1900-1990年),字寿朋,生于上海,中国著名法学家、政治学家、社会活动家。解放前曾相继在清华大学、北京大学、中央大学、西南联合大学等校任教。新中国成立后,曾担任北京大学校务委员会委员、法学院院长。1952年院系调整时,受命筹建北京政法学院(今中国政法大学),并出任首任院长。1954年,参与第一部《中华人民共和国宪法》的起草工作,对中国立法工作和社会主义民主法制建设作出了巨大贡献。钱端升先生的一生,周旋于学术和政治之间。前半生,他冀图入仕,将平生所学应用于政治实践,无奈事与愿违;后半生,他作为党政国家的一份子,学术研究的路被人为切断,不可避免地牵涉进政治旋涡里。钱端升这一代知识分子既是极幸运的一代,又是极悲沉的一代。
